Her exceptional professional embrace for innovation, networking and technology puts her a step above. She's committed to providing an unparalleled experience and outstanding results for her clients through the highest level of service and care.

When Norma Sayage was still a senior at Lowell High School, San Francisco, her father suggested that she get her real estate license to help with the purchases of properties since his English was limited and couldn't find a Realtor with whom he could communicate. Although she had no interest in the subject, aspiring to study business law or journalism, she did. Shortly after her 18th Birthday, she had her real estate license. From her father, Norma learned essential Old World values, hard work, discipline, ambition the importance of investing in real estate.

Upon getting her license, Norma went to work for Davis Realty in San Francisco where she focused on property management and some sales, until she finished her education.

She proceeded to get her degree in Journalism at San Francisco State University, emphasis in business. By the time she graduated, she was already married and expecting her first child. Real Estate was exciting, challenging, provided a more flexible schedule with a young child, and more lucrative; she decided to continue with her real estate career.

Norma looks back at her 29 years of real estate, since 1981, all the market cycles, the clients served, the ups, the downs, and thanks God she made the decision to continue down this path. In was in the halls of SFSUs journalism department that Norma learned some important habits that make her one of the most successful real estate agents in her area; that is the importance of listening to people, in-depth research and verifying the integrity of the facts. These disciplines have been of the utmost importance in her real estate career, especially now with universal access to the Internet, information is always readily available.

She moved from San Francisco to the mid-Peninsula in 1988 to raise her children, where she worked at Mueller Estates Realty, Re/Max,and then started her own company, Realty Executives West Bay, in 1999 after getting her brokers license. When it was time for a change in December 2006, Alain Pinel Realtors was the natural fit for Norma, a company known to be "the graduate school of real estate".

Norma has earned a reputation of being a hard-working, tough negotiator and a relentless advocate to her clients, who reward her with referral after referral. Recognized by her local board of Realtors as one of the top producing agents, Norma is respected by her peers as one of the most highly competent Realtors.

Ratings & Reviews

I met Norma when she was preparing a house for sale across the street that sold in a few days after listing and over asking price. I was impressed with the attention to detail and organizing and scheduling of inspectors, contractors, floor finishers, painters, landscapers, and stagers. My entire house preparation for sale process took a few weeks. Norma communicated with me and the workers on a daily basis. She negotiated and contracted with expert professionals she knew from her previous sales. My house was well presented and advertised and also sold in a few days after listing and well above asking. Norma is highly recommended!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Foster City, CA.

Norma helped us sell our property in Foster City and I recommend her highly. She understand the market well, and was able to stage and photograph our home to appeal to likely buyers. Our sale involved unusual challenges, including non-traditional buyer requests. Norma was able to address these challenges extremely effectively and professionally, and in each case obtained the outcome we were seeking. She also had excellent attention to detail in the closing process, reviewing all the documents and identifying several required changes that could have delayed the closing. In the end, we received a good price for our property, and a very smooth closing. I’ve been involved in over a dozen home sales, and Norma was one of the most effective and professional agents I have encountered.  More Less
